Starting her third year at Monash University, undertaking a Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (Honours), Emily applied and was granted an internship through the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) in conjunction with CSIRO which looks to offer undergraduates early opportunity to experience life as a researcher in a laboratory setting.

As a recipient of this internship, Emily will work alongside the Gelmi Group at RMIT in 2024 under the guidance of Dr Gelmi with her project aiming to explore stem cell responses to external stimulation.
